Printing a Sway
Sways are a great way to view a project 'on-screen'. If a Sway could be easily delivered in a format easily printed as well as viewed on screen with print templates suggested by Microsoft for each individual project than a Sway would be the ultimate project tool, especially for more formal presentations where a print is required (after-all, many people do also print a PowerPoint).
We are very happy to announce that you can now print your Sway in just two clicks: go to the “…” menu at the top right and click “Print”. Thanks!

Sway is indeed a productive project tool, I have used several fantastic features offered by Sway in my presentations, however, I had issues while printing some documents using epson printer, I have had help from https://epsonsupport247.com/epson-error-code-0x97/ in order to fix the issue.
i want to print side ways i do not like the the way it prints

How can viewers print? I have set my viewer to print option but when I click on the icon against an embed item and choose print PDF it just freezes. This is happening in both chrome and IE. Thanks
I see your sway team announced you can print--but it doesn't print or export to PDF or Word with the design! Not useful!!
Attention: Microsoft Inc. Windows
You are doing a good job. I think it is over in Rockport, Texas; but, there will be a few problems as they return things to normal. I will be leaving within the next 6 hours to 10 hours.

Thanks for implementing Print guys, though I presume support for printing Charts will come soon? :)

Have followed instructions above but when in print preview mode, I am only able to see 1 page of the document. If I try to print or export to PDF, only 1 page is printed or exported. Is this a bug or do I need to do something else other than the instructions shown. This is happening for my colleagues as well.

I wanted to use Sway for internal instructions, but I am getting feedback that the print function is absolutely crucial for my colleagues. Sorry, the real world is not over paper yet.
How do you change your browser size?
I can't believe this doesn't have a print option! I suggested my son used it for a presentation for his homework. It would have been perfect but he can't print! Back to Powerpoint and Word. Get it sorted Microsoft please.
I am trying to use sway for a resume but employees sometimes want a printed copy and sway lacks this ability.
It would be amazing if you guys could add a printed sway option that uses sways design tools but instead of a webpage layout its a printed layout.
Perhaps you could incorporate templates like a resume template that omits certain details such as pictures and tries to fit all the important things on one page. Because when your printing a resume, its gonna require different design choices from a webpage layout.

For now you can…
1) Click on the … in the top, right corner of your Sway
2) Choose Accessibility View
3) Change the browser to be about the size of the paper you’ll use (for best results)
4) Select browser built in-printing. (On Edge, Chrome, Safari – press Ctrl-P (Command-P on Mac) or use “…”/Print menu. In IE – use Tools (gear icon)/Print/Print Preview.)
5) Choose paper size, select printer or PDF output as desired. (For best results in IE, please check “Print Background colors and images” checkbox.)
Sorry but this isn't an option. Firstly, I'm going to assume that you're assuming that I'm doing this in a browser and not the app. I'm not.
Secondly, the output print looks like you'd expect a web page to print. If I put that in front of my management team they wouldn't be my management team a few days later.
Good effort all. Sway clearly has a future but in it's current iteration it's missing too many critical features to be a useful product and I've gone back to PowerPoint.
I want to use Sway to make my resume but i need an option to print it out because sometimes people ask for a printed version.
To MS team please inform when sway will be printable.
quite useless as it is

Of course it can't be interactive but give it the basic look of the sway when printing it

would be useful for info posters
As a Teacher Sway has helped me teach writing to my second grade students. However, we need to be able to print their stories so their parents and others can see their output. Printing capabilities are essential.
As a MESA teacher, my students need to be able to print their Sway journal for state and national competition. Please advise as to how my students can print on Sway. Thank you.

I would like to print my sway or get my students to print their sways
